Re: 1957 23 window bus
Hey there, if your Van happened to have another possibly American made engine installed in it, the chances are that you have a 900E Luxury Express Van. You can still put the 1100 into it and from what I have been told it was done at the time. The 900E had a habit of overheating. You will need to install a maintenance cover in the floor in a raised box for the air cleaner assembly, and make different motor and transmission mounts. You can use the old trans mount hardware attached to the frame for the transmission mounts. You may need to add a leaf spring to the front suspension, but it may have been beefed up if a different engine was installed anyway. I will check around for my notes on this.
